Nature has beautiful rivers and streams flowing down the earth’s mountains into valleys that follow specific pathways lined with sand and river rocks that perform special functions of filtration. As the water moves through the natural purification system, debris is removed – the end product resulting in a stunning lake of clear water. This amazing process of detoxification also occurs inside the human body through the complex super-highway known as the lymphatic system, which controls microcirculation as it transports interstitial fluid in and around the body tissues eventually dumping it so that the waste can be disposed of.
The anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system works within the body like a sewer system plant for a city. By taking in toxic waters, purifying them, and disposing of waste, it then produces a sparkling clean output. As clean fluids, blood, enzymes, and proteins are put back into circulation, it boosts the immune system and the cellular energy soars. The lymphatic system is similar to the front line special forces for the body that work to clear out invading enemies from the internal terrain, so the immune system can stabilize the ecosystem within and keep the balance process of homeostasis steadily moving forward to create optimal health.
